Here is a photo I took of Damood. If you haven’t heard of @damoodband you should give them a listen. Check out their profile. While visiting their account listen to their #tinydeskcontest submission. I love that @nprmusic gives us another way to listen to our favorite artist. #inthestudio #bradbarnwellphotography #frederickmusic #bandphotoshoot #talentedmusicians #funphotoshoot #frederickphotographer #nikon #lovewhatyoudo

Two years ago today our beautiful daughter Maebree came into our life. These past 2 years I feel have gone by so quickly. Maebree you make my heart melt when I hear you say hold me daddy or my daddy or singing baby shark or watching you play with Alexander and the strong sibling bond you guys share. Mama and I are so proud of you and always will be. Happy Birthday my lovely wild child! #bradbarnwellphotography #happybirthday #birthdaygirl #sheis2 #growinguptofast #laidbackbirthday #appleadaykeepsthedoctoraway #firsttimenappinginherbiggirlbed #lovestacos #bertanderniecake #presents #teddyruxpin #trolls #abbycadabby #sesamestreetkid #family #love #proudfamily #lovewhatyoudo #alwayshungry #alwayshappy #babyshark #keepsmeonmytoes

I loved this shoot with Larry and his boys. Being that I am a dad with two little ones and I’m never really photographed with them. I was super happy to take photos of Larry playing with his boys. Larry surprised his wife with the photos. #family #theboys #bradbarnwellphotography #ducks #frederickphotographer #carolcreek #capturingpersonalites #happyboys #climbing #hideandseek #nikon #love #lovewhatyoudo

Only in Maryland will it snow on the first and second day of spring. It was nice to have a family day in the middle of the week. Building a snow family, making snow angels, snowball fights, sledding and shoveling our walkway together overall I would say it has been a fantastic day. #familytime #snow #bradbarnwellphotography #winterwonderland #love #familyactivities #growingupfast #frederickphotographer #family #springtimesnowstorm #nikon

While working on my new website I came across this amazing shoot I did with Amy and Anna. I can’t wait for spring time to show up so I can do more fun shoots like this. Hair by @styledbyannafazio.

Caroline is super easy to photograph. She brought out her inner Tyra during our shoot. I am super glad she reached out to me when I was looking to try out the Nikon 105 1.4 lens. I used a blend of natural light and my profoto B1’s for the shoot. There was one photo that I didn’t use the 105 1.4 I used the 14-24 for the open field shot. I normally don’t take portraits with that wide of a lens but I feel it turned out how I imagined it would. #bradbarnwellphotography #portraits #style #editorial #editorialphotography #Tyra #testingnewproducts #nikon #comfortablewiththecamera #nikon105mmf14 #nikon1424mm #profoto #frederickphotographer #lovewhatyoudo #goldenhour #theworldismystudio #sunflare

A sneak peak from my maternity session tonight. There is going to be a new family member quite soon. Evryn is going to be a great big sister! Evryn is going to teach her baby brother or sister how to throw rocks across lake Linganore #bradbarnwellphotography #family #maternityshoot #maternityphotography #pregnant #babybump #familyphotography #familypictures #love #familyof4 #familypotrait #sunset #iamspeed #frederickphotographer #createlight #theworldismystudio #flashphotography #gradientsky #expecting #profoto #profotob1 #nikon #lovewhatyoudo

I love staying true to family traditions. The last five years I have taken photos of my kids on Saint Patty’s day and Christmas morning. It’s amazing watching them grow up.
